Ball State is in the midst of Fall Camp and Sports Link took the time to sit with David Raffin and discuss the death of his brother and switch to student coach.

Raffin suffered through the death of his brother to a heroin overdose and suffered a severe leg injury that ended his career and he is now a student coach with the Cardinals.

He discusses how his teammates and coaches have supported him through both life changing events.

The Cardinals are working toward the 2013 season opener Thurs., Aug. 29, against Illinois State at Scheumann Stadium.
